I had my ceremony and reception at the Dance Museum and it was the perfect setting for my pink and gold "summer glam" wedding! I had 90 guests, ceremony in the main ballroom, cocktail hour outside in the courtyard and reception back in the ballroom. Jo was so great and answered all of my many questions throughout the planning process. They only do 1 event per day which was great because my vendors were allowed to get in and set up with plenty of time just as long as it did not interfere with the museum (we had a Saturday wedding and the museum closes to the public around 4, my ceremony started at 5:30). They also have a large kitchen for the caterers which is nice. One thing to be mindful of is that the property grounds are run by the state park so the back courtyard lawn unfortunately wasn't mowed in time for my wedding (even though the museum called the week before to see if it could be done), the grass wasn't super tall but if I had an outdoor ceremony I probably would of minded more. During the night it did get really hot and the AC seemed to not be working but we just opened all the doors and there seemed to be a nice cross breeze. Overall the venue was beautiful and the guests loved how they could look around some parts of the museum, its definitley a unique venue in Saratoga with great picture spots!

Jo and Shelly are an amazing team! The venue is beautiful and we were super excited to have our wedding reception at the Museum. The acoustics, charm and decorum of the space is great for weddings! We utilized the southeast gallery for cocktail hour and the main room for dinner. It was a wonderful experience! Jo goes above and beyond to help out with your big day!
The Dance Museum is the perfect location for small to mid-sized weddings. The hall's white walls are perfect for a wedding reception, and their staff are friendly, polite, and accommodating. Best of all, their location is in the heart of Saratoga Springs.
Gorgeous venue, indoors and out. The staff will go out of their way for you.
We so enjoy this venue. It exemplifies the Saratoga Springs reputation of beauty and grace through dance with it's lovely, bright and ariy rooms. The staff is very professional to work with and always a pleasure.
